What makes coding special to me?
Coding is something that I am finding very relaxing.
When your brain is so chaotic as mine, coding gives me a sense of something that makes me feel safe. When you have two neurodiverse conditions which are by their nature polar opposites of each other, you mind can be a crowded and messy place. This is what I live with on the day to day
Coding brings me a certain amount of relaxation when my world is going crazy and there is nothing I can do to stop it
It also gives me something to focus on. When I am unable to sleep, or having stress, coding gives me that focus I need to get through.
There is something so elegant about coding. It never lies. It works or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t it gives you a mission for find out why it is not working. This is a challenge.
I would recommend finding a project that you can work on if you are Autistic. It can give you a sense of purpose in a crazy world that we find ourselves in.
Anyway I will leave it ther for now.
